Divine Mercy Sunday at the Carmelite Monastery Philadelphia.

From Theresa at Carmelitemom comes news that the Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia will observe Divine Mercy Sunday with a Holy Hour at 2pm followed by the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 3pm and veneration of a relic of Pope John Paul II.  Divine Mercy Sunday falls on May 1st.  As you may know, Pope Benedict XVI chose this day to beatify the late pontiff, who instituted the Sunday after Easter as Divine Mercy Sunday.

The Carmelite Monastery is located at 66th Avenue and Old York Road and is most easily reached by traveling straight up North Broad Street.  Off-street parking is available in the lot adjacent to the Monastery.  No word yet on whether or not the Avila Bookstore will be open.

Thanks Theresa :)


  1. No problem : ) When I go to the Monastery in another week, I will check the hours of the bookstore. That bookstore...I could get lost for hours ; )

  2. AHrhggh! I am flying out to see my daughter in MI that afternoon...a great thing, but sorry to miss this! I'll be with you in spirit, :)


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
